Hi Readers!! If you are a Whatsapp user, then there is good news for you, The messaging platform will roll out the chat history migration feature in a future update. It will enable its billions of users to migrate chat history on a different number. This can only happen if they are switching to a new phone.
Earlier WhatsApp allows chat migration from iOS to Android and vice versa, but chat history was still tied to the same number. Now, WhatsApp might let you transfer your chat history to a different phone number as well.

We have devised a step by step instructions that will allow you to transfer your WhatsApp chats and account to a new phone number. Before you proceed, make sure you backup your account.
1. The first thing that you have to do is open WhatsApp.
2. Now, tap on More Options, the three-dot menu button situated on the upper right portion of the interface.
3. Tap on Settings > Account > Change Phone Number.
4. Tap on Next and then enter the Old Phone Number in the old phone number field. (This is the number that is currently associated with your WhatsApp account.)
5. Enter the New Phone Number in the new phone number field. (This is the number you will be transferring your WhatsApp chats and account information on.) and tap on Next and write confirmation code sent to your new phone number. That’s all to it.
6. This is the most important step. In order to transfer your WhatsApp chats and account to a new phone number, create a backup. You can do this by tapping the three-dot button, heading over to Settings > Chats > Chat Backup > Backup. Make sure Google Drive backup is enabled.
